    Explanation: Where have all the dim stars gone? From many places on the Earth including major cities, the night sky has been reduced from a fascinating display of thousands of stars to a diffuse glow through which only a few stars are visible. The featured map indicates the relative amount of light pollution that occurs across the Earth. The cause of the pollution is artificial light reflecting off molecules and aerosols in the atmosphere. Parts of the Eastern United States and Western Europe colored red, for example, have an artificial night sky glow over ten times that of the natural sky. In any area marked orange or red, the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy is no longer visible. The International Dark Sky Association suggests common types of fixtures that provide relatively little amounts of light pollution.

    Jupiter and Venus from Earth

    Explanation: It was visible around the world. The sunset conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in 2012 was visible almost no matter where you lived on Earth. Anyone on the planet with a clear western horizon at sunset could see them. Pictured here in 2012, a creative photographer traveled away from the town lights of Szubin, Poland to image a near closest approach of the two planets. The bright planets were then separated only by three degrees and his daughter struck a humorous pose. A faint red sunset still glowed in the background. Jupiter and Venus are together again this month after sunset, passing within a degree of each other about a week ago.

    Divination, omens, and dreams are unreal; what you already expect, the mind fantasizes. Unless they are specially sent by the Most High, do not fix your heart on them.

    @andstatus@identi.ca i noticed the option today that let me switch between pump.io accounts such that I could quickly and easily choose to reply to or share to a post from a different account than the one in whose timeline it had been seen. In the attached screenshot you can see in logged into yatfaithfirefellowship@datamost.com and when i look at options related to the post by @jxself@datamost.com one of the options I get is ti "act as jimfulner" which allowed me to directly reply from this account jimfulner@identi.ca. This was actually one of the reasons I originally downloaded #AndStatus months ago, as the description in the app store sounded like it did that, but when i never saw the option on my AP accounts I just assumed I misunderstood the description

    !mywife and I got in a fight last night because I felt she was overreacting about the kids' birthday party, as our house was already spotless. I got waxked repeatedly with the rolling pin again.

    How does the Fediverse work? #ItWorksLikeEmail 

    Over the past few days as a result of the recent #twittermigation and all the new #introduction posts I've made numerous comments similar to this, so I figured I'd just make one Pinned Blog post and link to it instead

    I first started using the 'verse >10 years ago, back when it was just called "de-centralized microblogging" (which was actually pretty centralized from my recollection of identi.ca being the only instance that really was up more often than it was down) I never really used it as my primary Social Media for big part because I didn't really "get" it, until I gave up Facebook for Lent this year and decided I was finally going to dive all in to GNU Social whether I liked it or not.

    Here is what was most helpful for me in understanding how this all works. #ItWorksLikeEmail

    your email provider can have its own rules, (like you can't send spam), and you can choose to host your own server(where you make the rules, but most people chose not to), and you can talk to anyone else in the world who has an email address (regardless of whether or not you are both on yahoo.com), and while most people just use it, for one thing, it can be used for others (like posting to mail lists, or forums that have integrated mail support)
